True zero is probably in the -15 to -30 range. But you never want to run a brushless motor at true zero timing. They're at there peak efficiency and power band where the manufacture sets it to be zero on the end bell.

I think what he's asking is a question I have. "0" is not marked on the hash marks on the end bell of the duo 2 motors Is "0" the middle of the marks and is advance CW or CCW of that I think it's CW. This new motor was faster out the box than my old SP, it can only get better with a little tweeking to our track and conditions.
Thanks for the help,
Tim

Looking at the back of the motor...zero will be the longest slassh in the middle. If you move the mark to the right of it CCW is to advance it and if you move it CW is to retard the timing. Hope this helps!

It's right in the middle. Fifth hash mark from either side.

Ask and you shall receive:
